NFL free agency 2023 tampering period rumors and news

We will be keeping track of everything the Tennessee Titans do in the 2023 NFL free agency “legal tampering” period for you.

The NFL kicks off its “legal tampering” period at 11 AM central time this morning. As a reminder, legal tampering is an oxymoron. Also a reminder, this period means that teams can start to negotiate with free agents from other NFL teams. We will see a flurry of contracts agreed to over the next few days. Then we will see another flurry of deals as the league year officially opens on Wednesday.

The Tennessee Titans have already made a flurry of moves heading into free agency. They have released Taylor Lewan, Ben Jones, Zach Cunningham, Robert Woods, and Randy Bullock. They have announced the release of Bud Dupree, but that move won’t become official until the new league year starts. Dupree’s release will give them about $36 million in cap space. There have also been trade rumors surrounding Derrick Henry.

My guess for where the Titans will be the most aggressive in this negotiation period if anywhere, will be on the offensive line. They currently have one 2022 starting offensive lineman, Nicholas Petit-Frere, under contract for 2023. That’s not necessarily a bad thing with how bad the line was in ‘22, but they will need bodies to put out there on the field.
